Last Match Report



Chapel A 1 - vs - Queens Halifax


  1. ROSS WILLIAMSON lost to TOM GUDZELAK 3/11 9/11 11/8 3/11.

What to say about Williamson tonight. Well it’s clear that the daily diet of American burgers on holiday have not worn off yet as his opponent was able to hit a steady stream of service line drop shot winners in the first. A few stern words to him self in the break made the second game competitive although some clever holds and flicks from his opponent left the Williamson juggernaut chasing fresh air. More stern words followed which managed to coax a bit of life into the game (that and several generous tins from Tom). 2 1 down could this be the start of a come back….. Alas no in the fourth the burgers took total control and Williamson was left without any answers as Tom dominated with a excellent variation of shots that bewildered the fading Williamson. Tom won in 4.

 

  1. SIMON PARKE beat DAVID CAMPION 11/9, 11/4, 11/2.

Myself and Camps first played each other 35 years ago in an under 12s event where he got the better of me and we’ve been friends ever since. We’ve recently taken to playing each other more at Racketball (obviously as we’re getting on a bit, me 45, Camps 46) and this was the first time in many years we’d played squash. I was a bit concerned in the beginning as Camps has always had superior racket work to most players (including myself), but he is now actually quite fit in his old age! I still seemed to have the edge in agility though and came through a tight first 11/9. The second i have to say i raised my game a little, perhaps copying some of Camps’ tricks. The third unfortunately was straightforward for me as DC winged something on a lunge and couldn’t really compete in the same way….3-0 to me.

 

  1. MATTY POWELL beat DANNY BRAY 11/2, 11/4, 11/1.

This was one way traffic really, Matty still buzzing with confidence after beating a former World no1 Laura Massaro the previous week at Barnsley, he didn’t really give Bray a chance. Matty was volleying a lot, using lots of holds, and Danny didn’t look happy, struggling to get used to the court.

Matty looking dominant…..

 

  1. OWAIN TAYLOR beat JOSH TAYLOR 5/11 11/7 8/11 12/10 11/6.

Bit bad-tempered this one with lots of arguing which was a shame because both of these guys have some talent. The main problems were the traffic issues which the referee didn’t seem to be able to have a handle on and both players were getting frustrated. No relation by the way these two, as Josh seemed to have the better start and was quite dangerous into the front left. Owain was pretty solid on the forehand volleys in general but was in a bit of trouble just squeezing the fourth in a tiebreak. The fifth was pretty well contested in the first half but then Owain managed to pull through with some determined play and quality drives.

 

  1. MARK FULLER beat JAMES EARLES 11/8, 11/5, 11/8.

Fairly straightforward this for Mark as Earles (a former pro now bobby) took Mark short with great regularity. The problem with this was that Mark was moving really well and able to counter the short attack quite efficiently. Mark capitalised on his superior fitness and put some work into Earles’ legs with some long rallies and good accurate length forcing his opponent into all four corners. Reasonably close first game and then comfortable last couple.

 

 

SIMON PARKE.
